Alex Lowes is delighted to be returning to Donington Park this weekend as it is a track which holds some of his greatest memories in racing.

The 24-year-old Voltcom Crescent Suzuki rider claimed a World Superbike podium last year at the Leicestershire track and Lowes also achieved a double victory weekend at the circuit on his way to the 2013 British Superbike title.

"Donington has always been one of my favourite tracks and as it's only ten minutes from where I live, it really is a home race," Lowes said.

"I've made some great memories here over the years and the UK fans are always in great spirits, really supportive of all the British riders, and Crescent as the only British-based team, so it's a fantastic atmosphere all weekend."

The British rider will hope Donington Park can host a turnaround in fortunes for his Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team who have struggled in 2015. Lowes has managed a sole podium finish this season and sits 10th in the WSBK riders' championship.

"It's a technical layout and I always enjoy the challenge but I know the track so well," he said. "So I'm really looking forward to getting started on Friday and getting back out there on the GSX-R."

Donington Park hosts the 11th and 12th rounds of the 2015 World Superbike championship on the 22-24 April.
